Remarks by Spokesperson of Chinese Embassy in Nepal on the protest held by some organizations
Q: Recently, some Nepali organizations held protests claiming that China has encroached Nepal’s territory, imposed blockade on Nepal, banned Nepali students from returning to China and interfered into Nepal’s internal affairs. What comment do you have on it?
A: I have noticed the relevant reports. China and Nepal are traditional friendly neighbors. China unswervingly adheres to the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, respects Nepal’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and develops bilateral friendly relations on the basis of equality, mutual benefit and non-interference in each other’s internal affairs. China considers Nepal as an important partner of the Belt and Road Initiative, and does not attach any political conditions to its aid to Nepal.
The Chinese Embassy in Nepal has clarified repeatedly that China and Nepal have resolved the boundary issue through friendly consultations as early as the 1960s, and there is no dispute at all. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Nepal has issued a statement to clarify it and the Nepali government has also dispatched a team to conduct on-spot investigations. The foreign authorities of the two countries maintain good communication on border-related affairs. it is hoped the Nepali people not be misled by individual false reports.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, China has provided Nepal with a large amount of medical materials, including vaccines and liquid oxygen, which has strongly helped Nepal withstand the impact of the pandemic. The Chinese side opened one-way cargo transportation to Nepal by overcoming great difficulties and has continuously enhanced the ports’ cargo handling capacity, which played an important role in ensuring the supply of anti-pandemic and livelihood materials in Nepal.
At present, the fluctuating pandemic has caused difficulties in personnel and material exchanges among countries around the world, including China and Nepal. The top priority for all countries is to unite to fight against the pandemic and jointly defeat it. We look forward to working with the Nepali side to overcome the present difficulties and make efforts to restore the economy and normal personnel exchanges.
